This was a fantastic riad and well worth finding. It was hard to find with no signpost off the main road and we had to ask three people before anyone knew it! It's off the essaouira agadir road. From essaouira cross the river and on entering the next town look for the Swiss flag on the "k" restaurant ( I think that was the name of the restaurant) and by the "vivant poulet" shop. Go along the road opposite for about 1km and you will see a sign where you turn right and its there.

We had a great welcome and a lovely suite on the first floor with a door into the roof terrace. The pool was cool and refreshing and a the house was top class. Quite a new building with much character and a really nice atmosphere.

The owners and staff fixed a punctured tyre for us, taking it off to the village to be done and the hanged the tyre back for us too. Car was washed for us and overall a fantastic level of service.

Breakfast was the best we had n our travels

A must see in the way into Essaouira is the walk to the river from a car park just over the bridge five mins from the Riad. W watched around 17 Eleanor's falcons flying around both in their ing and evening. A fantastic display for any birders or tourists to watch - no binoculars needed! (Moussiers redstarts from the breakfast table too!)

Many thanks for a fantastic last night to our stay.

We stayed at Dar Etto after two nights in Marrakech before our Riad in the Medina oc Essaouira. We wanted quiet and relaxation and that's exactly what we got. The chap running things day to day speaks very little (no) English but despite this we were treated incredibly well from the moment we arrived after bumping in an ancient Peugeot 205 down the rocky road to the Riad! We had a lovely dinner prepared for us at little cost and our room rearranged to provide us with separate beds. It was a shame the pool was a little too cold to use in April but the building and setting were great and we got to read by the pool in the sun waiting for out camel trek to pick us up the next day. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and I thoroughly recommend the riad for a short stay!

What a wonderful place to stay. We cannot recommend this place enough as the space was stunning and was incredible value for money. You do need to be prepared to pay for the distance out of town but we knew this beforehand and can certainly confirm that you should pay no more than 50 dirhams. The taxi is booked by the riad on the way into town so there is no confusion over price. Be firm on your return journey as we did have to barter down from 100 dirhams but did secure the 50 dirham rate in the end. We thought it was well worth the additional hassle of being out of town as the riad is so tranquil, quiet and secluded that it added hugely to our holiday experience.

A beautiful place, the room was just fantastic! we got the one in front of the swimming pool!!! We were there in October and still I could enjoy the swimming pool and the amazing tent! The only problem is that it is a bit difficult to find but is part of the adventure! You'll have one more reason to remember it!!

The place is absolutely amazing. There is a little garden at the front with a swimming pool hugged by a big tree. The rooms are beautiful, the decoration is very pretty and relaxing. Breakfast was great with natural juices!... It's a bit far from the town but its away from all that fish smell that covers it. Sayid was extremely helpful and I will totally recommend anyone to stay there, he will help you with taxis to the town which cots 50dh. Thank you all!!
